Nate Gibson gav för några år sedan ut boken om skivbolaget Starday. Nu han har letat upp fjorton av Stardays originalartister - Betty Amos mcd Judy & Jean, Bill Clifton, Rudy Grayzell, Wade Jackson, Sleepy LaBccf, Little Roy Lewis, Jesse McReynolds, Darncll Miller, Frankic Miller, Arnold Parker, Margit Sing-leton and June Stearns. Nate gör duetter med alla i 24 spår, resultatet är absolut inte fvskam, visserligen börjar åldern ra ut sin rätt på ett par av legenderna men i stort är jag faktiskt rätt imponerad av resultatet. Oppningspåret «Rain, Rain» samt «Family Man» mcd Frankic Miller sitter som en smäck och dit hör också uptempospåren med Arnold Parker i «Find A New Woman», Darnell Miller i «Royal Flush• och «Mark Of Cain», Sleepy I.aBeef i «All The Time» och «Fm Through». Rudy Grayzell står i egen klass mcd rockrökarna «Let's Get Wild• och «Ducktail». Bland ballader är June Stearns helt suverän i «Wc Got Things In Common». Det bifogade häftet är på 56 sidor och rejält med information artisterna och inspelningarna. Nate Gibson gör att kanonjobb. Ro Rerglind

The Starday record company may be best known for giving George Jones his first break, but it did much more than that. Boss Don Pierce, in charge from the late 50s, had a maverick's taste for recording "unfashionable" honky tonk, bluegrass, old timey and Gospel at a time when Nashville was increasingly focused on smoother sounds. And by giving a second bite of the cherry to older stars, Starday was doing what enlightened operators like of Heart of Texas for country artists and Fat Possum for blues and soul artists have done more recently. To Starday we give thanks for the biggest hit of the Cowboy Copas's career Alabam, and a slightly more minor one for Moon Mullican (Ragged But Right). But Starday might have been forgotten had it not been for the bright young light, part musician, part scholar, part preservationist, that is Nate Gibson. He recorded his first record with Kenny Roberts, another former Starday favourite widely recognised as the finest yodeller in the business, back in 2001. Then, working with Pierce just before he died, he wrote The Starday Story: The House That Country Music Built, which is recommended reading.

NATE GiBSON & THE STARS OF STARDAY How to make something new with musical memory? Produced by Nate Gibson, the author of The Star-day Story (Univer-sity Press of Mis-sissippi), this 25-track album was recorded with the support of Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives and Chris Scruggs.

Nate Gibson. who is also a musician. has selected songs once released on Starday (country, rock-kabilly, bluegrass. honky tonk, gospel. western swing). He re-recorded them half a century after the originals with the artists he convinced to revive these titles, some of which are part of the heritage of any classical country music fan. Thus the presence of Betty Amos, Judy & Jean. Bill Clif-ton, Rudy Grayzeil. Wade Jackson. Sleepy LaBeef, Little Roy Lewis. Jesse McR eynolds, Darnell Miller, Frankie Miller, Arnold Parker, Margie Singleton. June Stearns, etc. gives a good taste of living history without distorting the compositions, with a real dynamism and a flawless sound.

A very beautiful 56-page booklet provides detailed testimonies on this magnificent project. Emotion guaranteed, with Bear Family quality. (JB) (BCD 17588►

Marty Stuart and his sidemen, Kenny Vaughan and Chris Scruggs. Rock n roll / rockabilly tracks are thin on the ground. Wildest of the handful is Rudy Gray-zell's aptly-titled 'Let's Get Wild' but this track. and his 'Duck Tail', clearly show that Rudy's voice is shot to pieces. Sleepy LaBeef's All The Time' and 'I'm Through' are acceptable and Frankie Miller's 'Rain Rain' makes for an ener-getic opener. Apart from bonus track The Spook', Nate's eerie instrumental, the remainder are pure country tracks played in the 'old-time'. trad-itional style. They are a consistent bunch and include rousing numbers, slow ballads and a little western swing. The backings are first rate with steel guitar. fiddle, banjo, mandolin and dobro all figuring. They will delight lovers of the genre. This extravaganza is hugely enhanced by the accompanying 56-page booklet with profiles of the performers involved and over 40 photos. many in colour. Clearly a labour of love, Nate has come up with something a bit special. Harry Dodds
